Life science students working on a dissection

Life Sciences, B.S. / Physician Assistant Studies, M.S.

Start your career early while saving a year of tuition through this combined degree program that awards a Bachelor of Science in Life Sciences and a Master of Physician Assistant Studies in just six years. During the pre-professional phase, you’ll begin where leading physicians, professors, and other health care practitioners all initiate their careers—by studying how living organisms function, survive, adapt, and evolve.

After you successfully complete the first three years of the pre-professional phase, you may transition to the Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies.
